This is my second x11, first got nicked in Spain . Its got power every where, smooth as silk and it handles far better than you'd think . Big fuel tank, comfy seat . It doesn't turn too quick, but then if I wanted that I would have got a sports bike . It will see off most sports bikes in a straight line and out break them.I found Dunlop 204 s work for grip and Macadams for lasting. I have a chain oiler fitted which is a must with all that power. The build quality is first class . Love it ! Strengths: Power, comfort, tank range, build quality . Weaknesses: Weight . Looks.
